for those of us who have been watching politics for years to see a speaker of the house fail so miserably to win support for his own measure. so that means the president is really not negotiating with anybody who can really make a deal. he can't cover any check that he'd write at the oval office. i've said all along the real issue is whether boehner can bring along his caucus for anything. he really can't and it puts everything in a tough position. but the president does end up with a more reasonable upper hand. i think jared is right. >> but the other thing i would just alert you to is, once they get through this, i think what happened last night and what's happening this week is really a bad, a bad omen for what the republicans might try to do once again on the debt ceiling in january or february. >> president obama argued tonight that both parties can agree taxes for the middle class cannot go up. let's watch what he said. >> in ten days, we face a deadline. even though democrats and republicans are arguing about whether those rates can go up for wealthest individuals, all of us agree

that they use for your taxes in your paycheck until they're sure there's certainty. because even if we were to go over the cliff, there's still a possibility it can still be fixed in the immediate time after that. >> so not an immediate cliff it sounds like. so house speaker john boehner was dealt hugely -- or what seems to be a hugely embarrassing blow when his own party refused to vote on his plan b proposal. where do republicans go from here? >> right now they are home in their home districts for christmas and will be watching a lot of the action i guess you could almost say from their couches. normally in a situation like this you would want to have the power to shape what something is going to look like. in a way, house republicans still do because ultimately that might, say, have to vote on something the senate takes up. at this point, it's something being worked out between the white house and senate democrats and also it will ultimately have to include senate republicans if it's going to have to pass the senate. but at this point, house republicans have kind of abdicated their power
